Bible: Acts 2:24-32

2:24 But God raised him up, 1  having released 2  him from the pains 3  of death, because it was not possible for him to be held in its power. 4  2:25 For David says about him,

I saw the Lord always in front of me, 5 

for he is at my right hand so that I will not be shaken.

2:26 Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue rejoiced;

my body 6  also will live in hope,

2:27 because you will not leave my soul in Hades, 7 

nor permit your Holy One to experience 8  decay.

2:28 You have made known to me the paths of life;

you will make me full of joy with your presence.’ 9 

2:29Brothers, 10  I can speak confidently 11  to you about our forefather 12  David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 2:30 So then, because 13  he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants 14  on his throne, 15  2:31 David by foreseeing this 16  spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, 17  that he was neither abandoned to Hades, 18  nor did his body 19  experience 20  decay. 21  2:32 This Jesus God raised up, and we are all witnesses of it. 22
